We've made some progress on our trip planning for San Fran. It's about two weeks away and we still have much to do but so far so good..
In my search for a fine dining experience, which is apparently abundant in the area, I stumbled upon this place. Anyone recognize it?
Well it's the French Laundry restaurant in Napa. Actually in Yorkville, a town in the Napa region.
Well let me begin by saying how critically acclaimed this restaurant is, seriously beyond acclaimed. I've heard of it before but could never place it, always thought it was in San Francisco...apparently not so much... whoops. Well besides being one of the best restaurants in the world it only serves two menus a day and they are both pre-fixe. So what's the catch you ask??
Well the price of a meal is $240 per person. That's right A PERSON....Granted it's a 9-course meal...but really...$240 dollars....Yikes. Doing the simple math means for the hubby and I to dine it would be $480 without any wine and or beer. Yeah, that's a bit of a budget crunch...however if it makes you feel better gratuity is included in that price.
Needless to say the hubby is not entertaining the idea. I tried to justify it by saying it is one of the best in the WORLD....he didn't even nod to acknowledge my comment.
Here is a post from someone who has taken part in this epic culinary journey. Lucky gal.
Moving on to the next restaurant....
